Former LSU QB Marcus Randall fired as Southern University Lab School due to violations

Former LSU QB Marcus Randall has been terminated as head coach at Southern University Lab School after an investigation uncovered several violations under his watch.

The LHSAA held a news conference on Tuesday afternoon to share the results of the probe and the punishment, which will be pretty heavy on the Baton Rouge school.

Southern Lab was found to have illegal recruiting, and students received special benefits. More investigations are still to come.

Southern Lab will have to vacate its state championships during the 2015 and 2016 football seasons. The Kittens will also be banned from postseason play for two years and sanctions for all athletic programs will be put in place until 2019. The school will also be fined $5,000.

Randall, who was hired as the school’s head coach in May 2015, will also need to serve a one-year suspension by the LHSAA.

Randall played four seasons at LSU from 2001-04 and played one season in the NFL for the Tennessee Titans.
